Get some coffee and enjoy this touching essay by Hillaire Belloc (you'll have to copy and paste the link).

I made a pdf of it, attached.

In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”
